About Edit

Occasionally, an autom gains sentience and takes on adventures of its own. When playing as an autom, please follow the statistics below.

Racial FeaturesEdit

Ability Score Increase Your Constitution score increases by 3, though your Dexterity score decreases by 2. Alternatively you can increase your Intelligence score by 2 in exchange for lowering your Charisma score by 2.

Age Automatons can physically be over 100 years old, but mentally consider themselves only as old as the spirit that has given them sentience.

Alignment Must be LN, NG, CN, NE, or N. Most Automata fall in the completely neutral section.

Size Most automatons have been built or later modified to the same height and build of either a human or a dwarf, though some retain their original bulky shape. The more modern autom weighs in at about 300 pounds, while an autom who keeps his original shape weighs in at about 550.
